Cheers, Metro Detroit! We are officially in the midst of the holiday season. Seemingly right on cue, the snow is falling and the view out the window is reminiscent of the winter wonderland we look forward to all year long. If you’re looking for ways to take in the beauty that can only be found this time of year, check out some of these local holiday light displays, where bright colors reflect off the pristine white snow of a Michigan December.

Wayne County Lightfest – Westland

Now through New Year’s Eve, experience four miles of lights from the comfort of your own vehicle. Wayne County Lightfest features 100,000 lights and nearly 50 animated figures throughout Hines Park. On select days, take photos with Santa and enjoy concessions to snack on throughout the ride.

Big, Bright, Light Show – Rochester

Starting at 5 p.m. daily through January 21, Downtown Rochester transforms into a seasonal paradise, decked in over one million holiday lights. Enjoy the scenery while visiting the local shops and restaurants, or just drive through to catch a glimpse of the fun. Decorations will be up on Main Street from South Bridge to Romeo Road, and Fourth Street from Walnut to Walter Streets.

Beacon Park – Downtown Detroit

Downtown Detroit looks beautiful as ever under the 125,000 lights at Beacon Park. The fifth annual celebration features food trucks, holiday music, and scenery that reminds all why the holidays are better in the D! The lights are on nightly from 5 p.m. to midnight from now until mid-January.
